My last day in D.C., I was given the opportunity to visit Frederick Douglass’ home. It’s wonderful that his house and belongings have been preserved. There was new wallpaper installed, but the wallpaper was a replica of the old wallpaper. Essentially, everything is as it had been. We don’t always know who’ve lived in our homes before us, which means we really don’t know the history behind it. There are ten rooms in his house, some were add ons. He kept his first wife’s room closed after she died, but when he remarried, the second wife’s room was a room was one room from the first. What I thought was interesting was that Douglass walked from his home to the Capitol. Apparently he was in great physical condition. He must have been because were he worked was really a ways from his home. I was honored to be able to see how he lived, the clothes he wore and what he left behind. I have a few photos that I’d like to share, so enjoy.
